Beautiful tipis on the river, nice RV sites

Stayed here 2 times. One time in the tipis In July and one time in an RV site in early May. The tipis are gorgeously appointed and so comfortable to sleep in. They are right on the Shoshone, definitely a great and five star experience. You can fish on the river if it’s not running too fast and there is a Trout pond you also can fish for free.

The RV sites are all pull-through and very nice grace ,but unfortunately can’t see the river from them. The showers and laundry are clean but laundry is limited. They have a coffee shack but not open. Lots of great birds of prey in the area. Close to Cody.

A hot tub and larger laundry would make this place perfect.

Nice

Right by rodeo grounds. Owners are great. There is a small store, showers, cabins. Sites are on either side of small streets. (Best way I know to describe it) Sites are very close to each other. Trees all over. Park is on edge of town—great location.

Serenity

Beautiful, quiet campground situated near a stream with willows. We saw moose nearby and a deer near our campsite. No electricity . Get away from it all here.

Best Campground in the State of Wyoming

The Medicine Lodge Archaeological Site is maintained by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. I normally avoid campgrounds and prefer dispersed camping or backpacking, but I gladly camp here. Sites are well spaced out with Medicine Lodge Creek running through the campground. A walking/bike path goes end to end in the park following the creek. It does not have electrical hookups or dump stations for RVs. There are no shower facilities, but it does have vault toilets and drinking water. You can also buy firewood onsite as there is really nowhere to gather your own wood inside the park. You can go down the 4WD road at the north end of the park to Black Butte a bit and usually find your own firewood, however. All fires must be within the campsite fire rings.

The Medicine Lodge Archaeological Site is a perfect place to camp to explore the Bighorn Mountains, being relatively close to the Medicine Wheel and Shell Falls. If you enjoy craft beer, Tensleep Brewery -- located in a refurbished barn -- is located approximately 20 - 30 miles south in Tensleep.

Fantastic hot springs pool !

We have stayed here quite often over the past 30 years or so and thouroly enjoyed soaking for hours in enormous pools there .

A great place to hang out and relax in central Wyoming.

Wonderful trip out west

We used this campground as our base camp for a week. It was windy and even for late July it was 45* at night. The campgrounds and toilets were clean and there was fences and guards across the roads to keep the grazing cows out. We were lucky enough to have a momma and baby Mose right in the woods in the campgrounds.

Absolutely beautiful!

Every chance my family gets to escape to this gorgeous area we take it. Lots of trails for atv riding, hiking, horse back riding, you name it. Great place for a family camp or reunion.

Cleaniest campground I've ever been in and my family camps a lot….highest ratings.

Lakeview campground on meadowlark lake

Wr saw a moose by the lake one morning. Open parking spots. Great host!

Right next to railroad tracks!

Be aware! There are trains that run all night. They are right next to the campground. Coin showers and laundry. Drive through sites.the hot springs pool was hot and nice to relax.

Great Staff! Very clean!

This campground is just outside Cody, WY. Easy access for people just passing through, just off a main road. They offer free pancake breakfast in the morning and a very cute store with almost every necessity for campers. tent sites, RV sites, cabins, and TeePees!

lakes

there are several campgrounds along the 20 mile dirt road to this campground. there are also several lakes, paintrock lakes and medicine lodge lakes. there was a microburst a few weeks ago so there a lot of trees blown over, really cool to see.

great sitez

sites are set up with alternating hookups so you are not picnicking over your neighbors dump hose. most sites have a paved patio as well.

Peaceful

Nice little campground on Little Willow Creek. sites are nice, but a bit close to neighbors. Quiet overall except for some day traffic on nearby service road. Excellent walk/drive access to Tongue River. Hosts were amazing!

Old Fashioned Camping

this is a fantastic campground in the Bighorns. Beautiful scenery and incredibly picturesque. we have camped here for years as friends and with family and we love coming back anytime we can. it’s right on the south fork of the Tongue River and while the fishing is better on other rivers in the area it’s a great place to teach kids or just relax for the evening while you watch the Brookies jump!

Like a small desert... next to a lake.

Horseshoe Bend is a great camping area. It is right next to the marina, where you can buy a few supplies, and there is a roped off swimming area nearby. Great place for families to get away.

No cell signal, which is not really a bad thing in my opinion.

We have found scorpions, however, so always be aware of your surroundings!

Beautiful and surrounded by Native History

Around this mountain range is the Crow Medicine Wheel and one of the oldest trails in N America! Native tribes from the area still come to these sacred sites to pay homage to their ancestors and cultural identity. Definitely a unique experience worth visiting

Nice place

Clean with plenty of space between sites. Great free breakfast. Store hours very accommodating and staff very friendly.

peaceful

Sibley lake is very calm and peaceful. perfect for a kayak, floating around on a tube and fishing. nice spacious area.

nice campground

this campground is nice, its near an awesome fishing stream and just down the he road is arrowhead lodge . the only downfall is it's right next to the highway

so pretty

very nice place to spend the day…lots of trees

Windy!

Stayed in the Sheep Mountain Fire Tower. With gale force winds blowing the shutters off…and a steep walk to the vault toilet…we bailed early. However, the Bighorns are AMAZING! Saw my 1st moose! Take tent heater for the tower unless going in middle of summer.

bald mountain

This is a cute little campground just across the highway from the medicine wheel. no streams in or near the campground but there are waterfalls within about 20 miles. great views, clean toilet facilities and a water pump.

Beautiful Area!

Roads aren’t super well maintained, so make sure you’re comfortable with driving on gravel, and 4WD

Free campsites up the road

We thought about camping at Leigh Creek campground, but on the same road there is a bunch of free campsites more upland from the creek and have beautiful views of ten sleep canyon. we camped right in the middle of the canyon and woke up to unforgettable views in the morning.

A popular atv location with moose that join you for breakfast

This was down the road from my last camp and had more nights open. It was a great find until I found myself the line camper in the middle of a family reunion. Putting that aside, it was a good campground.

you drive a couple miles down dirt roads into the mountains. This sets the tone for an adventure. The sites were good sized. The vault toilets and trash bins were looked after often. Picnic tables - with moose and deer visitors - were great.

I liked the tie Flume trail just a quarter mile down the road. Follow that road and go on a dirt road trip. Black Mountain fire tower is 10 miles down. Continue and get back to the main road. I stayed a couple days here. It’s centrally located to explore the northern Bighorns.

A roadside camp right in the Bighorns

I saw this national forest campground right after going through construction. It was a welcome find. It’s over a small hill the road noise is minimized.

There was a site open for the night and I grabbed it. Another camper walked by and said it’s his favorite place to camp. Walk right out into the Bighorns and you’ll find diversity. There are different forests on each side.

We camped in the spot next to the host. It offered plenty of shade in this quiet abode. The vault toilets and water were nearby. It’s a small campground so nothing is really far.

The one drawback is the 4H campground just down the road. It’s free to anybody when they aren’t using it. This meant an endless line of big camping rvs and atv traffic. I would have stayed longer if it weren’t for this. That also might suggest a free camping site if you are set up for it.

glass lake

peaceful lake with easy access. Fun fishing for families.
